Low Smoke 2-stroke oil and/or mixture suggestions

Post by jmuriz »

I got another old 2-stroke Ducati (Cadet 100 4-speed to go along with my Falcon 80 project) and wondered if the brain trust here has suggestions on lower smoke oils to use.

Being an older bike it takes between 16:1 and 20:1 mix (i.e. lots of oil compared to modern 2-strokes). Actually the manual states it as 5-6%

Also, would a full synthetic allow for more lubrication so I can run a less oil in the mix?

Thanks for suggestions.
